Hi all,

I'm organising a Games Day on April 6th at the Tower. It'll be roughly from midday (after lunch) to late.

The day is open to SOs, children, and I'll probably invite a few folk from work and church. If younger children come along who don't want to play games, Mrs CD and the younglings are happy to host playtime in our apartment.

The plan is to have the afternoon be family friendly games /accessible games and transition to some meatier games and possibly a little Artemis later in the day. It'll be pretty flexible.

I'll make some chilli for dinner. If you can, please bring drinks and snacks to share. The big room in the Tower has fridge/ oven / microwave / sink.

Some indication of interest for numbers/ food would be helpful. PM if you need directions/ to know which buzzer to push.

Thanks,
CoffeeDrinker

I'm in the same boat Coffeeman. Really appreciate the offer and will take you up on it in the future.

I am available and showing up. I will bring the Artemis Bridge for multi-pay goodness.


However based amount of windows in the room (copious amounts of light) and a general reaction of younger gamers to Artemis (generally gaga), I will bring it after the mid-point. The projectors will need a blank wall to show on. If there is no such wall, let me know. I will need to finish my portable screen.

GT - I'd thought about putting Artemis into the boardroom (where we played Risk Legacy)? but yes, had thought about it for later given what you'd previously mentioned about gaga

I'd like to try this Artemis crack you speak of.

Kick off at noon. Space reserved til midnight.

Bring family
(or not). I'm hoping to run a strand of accessible (to new players ) gaming at least through the afternoon and my kids are hoping for some games/ or other kids over.(I don't know if anyone from any context other than games is coming - it's also possible the kids may all vanish downstairs).
Bring games
(or let me know what you'd like up from the collection) - actually for Harb or SB I'm hoping someone brings Sentinels. Maybe Suburbia if it doesn't get played on thursday?
I might try to drag out 20th Century. pandemic (if CD jr wants to play it)?, burgundy, dominion maybe, TtR maybe, 7 wonders maybe? and pretty much anything not too in depth (leaving my world of warcraft / civilization / mare nostrum in storage. not planing on Arkham Horror or Twilight Imperium ;-) )...
Could someone bring a copy of for sale and/or high society? (I gave mine away and haven't replaced them yet!)
Brings snacks / drinks.
As a minimum I'll have some bean chili and water available (investigating other options).
Bring technology?
(or not)
GT is bringing Artemis set up for later in the day. (GT I can break out that screen if you want one).
I've Artemis for my ipad and the room has wifi of some kind so if you have both tech and software, we could maybe try a second ship (though there might not be a socket to plug GT's setup into the interweb so that might not work.)
I'll try to figure out some speakers/ music. though if anyone happens to have a small portable set that might be handy.
Parking
on the street not in the lot.

Anything I've forgotten?

I should not need the TV display as I have a VGA capable projector and a back-up. The boardroom should work splendidly since at worst the sun will be on the far side of the building.

I am planning to show up around 4:00-ish, ready to have Artemis running around 5:00-ish.

I should have at least LRO in tow and a few board/card games as well.

I will make it with the Yidling, but I'm not sure when. I need somewhat more specific times. I'm working on some major projects around the house.

Yid, whatever works for you. I will be there and playing all day (well from noon)! I think Harb and Co are planning to be around, GT and LRO are coming 4 ish. Most folk haven't commented ;-) ... From other spheres there's some folk maybe in the evening, another family from 3 ish for a while. This seems to be a busy weekend for many. Do you or the yidling want me to have Memoir or Lords of Waterdeep to hand? I've only one copy of the memoir base so not sure if we could pull off an overlord map (CD jr is starting to play sometimes but not sure he's ready yet - maybe in the future).

We could play an Overlord scenario, but the group isn't big into Memoir 44. We have been playing Waterdeep every night since last Saturday. It is a hit. I think we will come mid-afternoon. That will give me some one-on-one with my house. I'll still bring Memoir and my Overlord scenarios.

LRO will be there before I will. He will arrive closer to noon, I am still closer to 4:pm.

Oh, once again it has snowed for CD's event. Not a big surprise.

Keeping in mind the world of Douglas Adams, I nominate CD for the title "Snow God"

Snow just wants to make him happy on his special days!
